New Multilateral Financing Mechanism for Global Health Security and Pandemic Preparedness [open pdf - 0B]
From the Overview and Context: "Health experts around the world have warned for years that countries, regional bodies, and global institutions must invest more in critical capacities to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats -- and the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic lays bare how the current global health architecture was not prepared to prevent or respond with the necessary speed and force when the threat emerged. [...] Given this clear and present threat, multiple recent reports from an array of leading global health and finance experts have concluded that the world needs a new multilateral financing mechanism, or Fund, for global health security and pandemic preparedness. [...] In short, there is a broad consensus that urgent action is needed to mobilize significant new resources for global health security and pandemic preparedness through a new multilateral financing mechanism or Fund."
